the city's parking enforcement laws under the business and tax code. it reduces the bonding requirement for operators that have a strong record of tax compliance and simplifies the bonding categories. additionally, the legislation includes other clarifications and administrative changes that ms. florence mar who manages the business tax section of the treasurer and tax collector's office will present on. supervisor campos introduced this legislation after hearing from small parking operators that were having a difficult time meeting the high bonding requirements and larger operators that have operated in good faith with a proven record of responsible third-party tax collection. the sfmta has informed us that their staff has reviewed the legislation and has no concerns and chris schulman is here from the office of small business who will represent the small business commission's findings. i'll now turn over the presentation to ms. mar. thank you. >> good afternoon, supervisors. florence mar, tax director of the office of treasurer tax collectors. we'd like to thank supervisor campos for

. >> these is around people who are experiencing mental health issues. i think that the law enforcement happens within our 49 scary miles and what happens on our highways is different as well. there are number of contributing factors as we look at the 15 officer-involved shootings over a five-year study, seven were non-lethal and eight were lethal. and all 7 cases, there was no detections of any drugs or anything of that nature on board. and on all eight instances medical examiner, discovered multiple drugs on board of the victim in those cases. i think that there are a number of factors that contribute to the injuries that we may be talking about that i don't think will be captured in one paragraph of a report. >> and before we go to the public comment, one last question, what is it now that is driving a push within the department for tasers? is there a... has the human heart changed over the past, you know, five years or so? are we seeing dramatic increase in officer-involved shootings compared to what we had before? are we finding that despite what we see in terms of controversy that this is what i

of the board are well aware that in 1973 your predecessors passed a law that made san francisco a transit first city. here we are 40 years later talking about removing a bike lane because there are too many private automobiles that will be going around looking for parking. we're not talking about doing initiatives to improve car share or the hundreds of people who will not have to use a car because of these bike lanes. we're talking about removing a bike lane for private automobiles which is so profoundly idiotic. i think it really boggles the mind. the last point is really to reiterate what i told mta board which is that we're living in a time -- crisis this is a time when we need bold action. we don't need two and a half years of looking at six blocks on fell and oak. we have other cities laughing at us, chicago, minneapolis, portland, new york. i encourage you to reject the appeal. thank you. >> president chiu: walter, his you've already participated in this public comment. no, you can't, actually. thank you. are there any other members of the public that wish to speak in public comment on b

and hopefully i'm hypothetical enough that i'm not stepping on any laws. if you were to run for a city office again i certainly as a rafid radical progressive would be behind supporting you in that effort, so hopefully for anybody that is watching we have all established that supervisor olague is a excellent major asset to the city and t progressives and i hope that you continue. thanks. >> next speaker. >> hi. paul kangis again. before the ross mirkarimi vote i didn't know who supervisor olague was and it takes that courage and supervisor that with stood the attack and it's the whole idea being able to speak freely in this city in spite of what the rich think, being able to act freely within this city which makes san francisco a city that the whole world looks at and follows and listens to and so even though i'm a critic of cca, simply for scientific reasons, i appreciate the fact that the supervisors did the thinking they did and came to the conclusion they came to because even though the environmental crisis is going to bring huge storms this year beyond the political storms. in fact the

how it would work out. also what i wanted to call your attention to is that by law the street artist displays are 3 feet deep this way by 4 feet long this way, and no taller than 5 feet. and the design that the bid and the art commission staff came up with would exceed two of those dimensions. they would exceed the length dimension by one feet and exceed the height dimension by two feet, they would make it 7 feet tall. if you were to approve this pilot program and the redesignation of these 47 spaces, it would be with the exemption from two regulations, the regulation that says a street artist space must be no more than 4 feet wide and the regulation that says that it can be no taller than 5 feet and then there's a third regulation and that is that street artist displays cannot be within 5 feet of each other. so if you increase each space around the plaza rail, if you can picture this, then instead of there being 5 feet between the spaces, there would be 3 feet between the spaces. you did this historically speaking about nearly 30 years ago when you exempted 12 spaces around bart

and commissions are governed by either your charter or by state law so it's easy to go down the road to figure out is it something that can be changed or a discretionary act within the board of supervisors or the mayor and to go about change that so it's something you could look at. >> i guess in the charter -- i am wondering in terms how they function or not, and i don't know how we get into that really. maybe it's not worth it. i won't be here obviously but it's something i was something about. i guess i am thinking out loud here. >> point well taken. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >> i'm sorry. i was misunderstanding commissioner olague's question -- >> i think commissioner olague -- >> yeah, i was wondering because you have some commissions that are selected entirely by the mayor and some aren't and i am wondering in terms of the outcomes -- whatever. >> i am with you now. i was responding to what i thought you were asking but you were asking something different. >> okay. >> let me just say -- yes commissioner? >> actually one other clarifying -- so under this proposal ms. miller would remai
